I recently acquired this 'stamp' in a mixed lot. I have no idea what it is, although I'm inclined to believe that it is some sort of trading/discount stamp or perhaps a ration coupon or some other type of cinderella.

It depicts a stylized head which seems to show Art Deco influences. I have no idea where the label originates from, and it has no text and inscriptions except for "2 8".

When I asked about this item elsewhere, no one was able to identify it although some suggested that the style is reminiscent of stamps from Latin America, specifically Mexico.

Can anyone identify this stamp/label please?



Edit: Title amended as suggested

Yes I can.........I saw it 3 days ago
I had it on my computer as "Sphinx" (name association)

I'll get "Agent Ransack" back to work, and scour my computer.
Be back soon.

Good old "Agent Ransack" you did it again !

Italy= "Marche per quaderni"

You have time, please adjust your thread title to something like
Italy Marche per Quaderni Exercise Revenue (or similar)
It can help other students in the future.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the replies and for identifying this stamp Rod!

It's interesting that the Italians had a tax on exercise books - I had never heard about anything similar before. I researched a bit about these stamps and I came across this listing, which seems to be a useful reference:
http://xoomer.virgilio.it/cbussoli/quaderni.html

I also looked through eBay and I found some exercise books franked with similar stamps for sale. I'm posting these two here for posterity:

I have amended the title as suggested. Can a moderator please move this thread to the "World Back of Book" forum since I think it fits better there?

Hi Thorbjorn,
apologies, I failed to record my source, as far as I can tell, it was just a sheet,
somewhere, I recall being exhausted searching for that stamp image.
It certainly was not from a book of any sort on the web.

There exists a smaller *.pdf of the type here

Brand spanking new cond.

A Brief reconnoitre, suggests "Quaderni" is not addressed..
